We provide our Linux build as self contained AppImage. It can be launched right away without the need for additional installation steps.

After downloading to the preferred location, make the AppImage executable from a command prompt:

$ chmod a+x Stagehand_Live_2*.AppImage

Afterwards you can simple launch it:

$ ./Stagehand_Live_2*.AppImage

You will be prompted to ask if you want to integrate the application with your desktop environment and Stagehand Live 2 will continue to launch from there.

A video highlighting the steps necessary can also be found on the AppImage website at
